5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of valuable advice in here, 24 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Wannabe A Writer We've Heard Of? (Secrets to Success) (Paperback)
I'm not a huge reader of non-fiction books. Not because I don't want to learn new things, but because I usually find them so dull and difficult to get into that I don't absorb anything anyway. There's absolutely no danger of this with Jane Wenham-Jones' fab book, Wannabe a Writer We've Heard Of? A couple of years ago I read her first book in this series, entitled Wannabe a Writer? and thought it was awesome, so I was delighted to read this book, too.

Jane Wenham-Jones is a lady with her fingers in many pies; fiction writer, non-fiction writer, newspaper and magazine columnist, and so on. She's also in the public eye a great deal and therefore perfectly placed to be giving advice to people on such matters. In Wannabe a Writer We've Heard Of? she does it in her usual inimitable style: fun to read, easy to understand and full of humorous anecdotes.

What's great about this book is that every piece of information is broken up into small, easily read chunks, so you don't feel overwhelmed by it. Add in Jane's wicked sense of humour and sage advice, and you're onto a winner here.

As someone who's in the PR game as well as writing, I still found lots of valuable advice in here. I would say this is mainly aimed at people with paperback books available in the shops, and the advice deals mainly with 'real world' stuff as opposed to online, but nevertheless it's a brilliant book to add to your shelf.
